We started using the brazier.



We have been practicing temae with the sunken hearth, which is for the winter style, basically used between December to April. (A picture for the sanken hearth is on the right.) Now it’s in May. So, we started to use a brazier instead of the sunken hearth in the lessons from this month. The positions of each utensil and your sitting direction are different between the winter and summer temae. I’ll always confuse the temae in the beginning of a new season (^-^;)

    1. Yeah, braziers are usually expensive. I regret to say that I don’t know where you can find cheap braziers. Sorry. (^^;;
